Lily Allen caught Uncle Karl’s attention when her first album came out and she’s been spotted wearing Chanel on many occasions – from Chanel’s Matyroyshka Doll purse to the homemade double C’s. Rumors and sneak peeks have been swirling online surrounding Lily Allen ads for Chanel and on Monday, photos from the campaign were publicized.
Lily Allen was shot for the “Coco Cocoon” campaign and the looks were very inspired by Holly Golightly, the infamous character from Breakfast at Tiffany’s that Audrey Hepburn brought to life. From the black glasses, tiara, gloves and bouffant, Lily Allen mixture of innocence and sass makes her a great 21st century Holly Golightly.
The “Coco Cocoon” collection features lightweight nylon and lambskin leather totes that come in an understated palette of black, ecru, navy and beige. All of the bags are reversible and when you turn them inside out, they reveal a side that is quilted garnet – the original lining color of the 2.55 bag.
I love the idea of referencing the garnet of the original bags, but the shade they chose for this collection is a bit too burnt orange – I wish it were a brighter red instead. I think the idea of a lightweight nylon quilted bag is cute and would be great for travel since they start out so lightweight. Now, they just need to make some cocoon coats to go with the cocoon bags – just in time for winter. The “Coco Cocoon” collection debuts in October 2009.
